The Designers Review of Books

Hi folks,

Quick plug for a new site I've launched called The Designers Review of
Books http://www.designersreviewofbooks.com

Although there are not yet any reviews on interaction design you can
be sure I will be covering that area quite a bit, given that it's my
own discipline. I'm going to be (p)reviewing Dan Saffer's Designing
Gestural Interfaces very soon too (thanks Dan!) to coincide with an
interview with him on Core77.

So, here are two questions to you all:

How do you keep track of suggested changes to interaction designs?

In the process of building new design tools at Stanford, the following
question came up - and I'm hoping you could help me out by reporting your
personal experience:

How do you capture comments and suggestions for revisions to interaction
design prototypes?

There is no equivalent to Word's "track changes" in tools like Flash or
Dreamweaver - so what are your practices to record and share revision
suggestions? Write a text list of changes? Print out screens and mark them
up with Sharpies? Screen grab and annotate in Photoshop?

How well do those solutions work for you?
